Maurizio Sarri has handed Kepa Arrizabalaga and Jorginho handed their Premier League debuts as Chelsea take on Huddersfield on Saturday.

Former Napoli coach Sarri replaced Antonio Conte in a restless summer for the London club but any fears of an opening-day upset disappeared with goals from France global N'Golo Kante, summer signing Jorginho and Pedro.

"You have to use your chances and (luck) wasn't on our side unfortunately, so we keep going and keep working, it's only the first game".

"We are not a physical team and I think the best of the game is the capacity to suffer for 15 minutes". And then on Tuesday another two, so it's not been easy for me at the moment. This would have been one for Huddersfield, but it is still early.

But Chelsea took the lead in the 34th-minute.

N'Golo Kante got Chelsea up and running, with a cool Jorginho penalty doubling their lead before Eden Hazard came off the bench to tee up Pedro for the third.

Huddersfield had the better of play from that point and hit the inside of the post through a Steve Mounie header, but just before the break it was 2-0.

Christopher Schindler's sliding challenge on Marcos Alonso was deemed illegal by Kavanagh and Jorginho craftily waited for Hamer to commit before clipping his spot kick into the opposite corner.

And indeed Hazard was excellent once he was introduced, producing several trademark dribbles, and setting up the goal that killed the game, carrying the ball up the middle before laying off to Pedro, who beat Ben Hamer with a lovely chipped finish. On Monday four players from the World Cup arrived.

The winger, long linked with Real Madrid, made an impact after he entered with his dribbling ability immediately evident.

"A disappointing result, not a disappointing performance, especially the first half", the Terriers boss said. They were not dominant, but kept their theoretically superior opponents from making too many threatening attacks, happy for Chelsea to pass the ball around in deep positions.
